The State Department Summoned Chinese Ambassador: Stop Spreading Lies that Coronavirus Began in America; Chinese State Media Threatens to Unleash "A Mighty Sea" of Coronavirus in America

As John Sexton noted a couple of days ago, part of the reason people enjoy saying Chinese coronavirus is that the Chinese Communist dictatorship lied to the world about the virus, slowing our ability to respond to it/contain it for a month. A month during which the Chinese sent their plague around the world.

And then, soon after, the Chinese Communist Dicatorship started pumping out conspiracy theories that the virus had actually originated in the US, and that it might even be a US bioweapon.

As the Washington Post reported last week, China is encouraging the spread of online conspiracy theories that the virus actually originated in the US:


In recent days, run-of-the-mill mockery of the White House has taken a darker turn as the Chinese Internet became inundated by the theory, subtly stoked by the Chinese government, that the coronavirus originated in the United States. The U.S. government, one version of the theory goes, has been covering up mounting cases, and perhaps thousands of deaths, by classifying them as regular flu.

While conspiracy theories pervade the Internet in every country, the sudden surge and overwhelming prevalence of anti-U.S. rhetoric this week has been conspicuous and significant in the context of China, where censors typically scrub speech that strays out of bounds and police quickly detain those deemed to be spreading rumors...

Today the Guardian published a follow-up on these conspiracy theories which are still spreading on Chinese social media:


One of the most popular topics on the Chinese microblog Weibo on Thursday was a one-minute clip of a US congressional hearing this week on how the country was dealing with the coronavirus.

In the video posted by the People's Daily, Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is asked whether there may have been deaths attributed to influenza that could actually have been the result of Covid-19. Redfield responds in the affirmative: "Some cases have been actually diagnosed that way in the United States today."...

"The US has finally acknowledged that among those who had died of the influenza previously were cases of the coronavirus. The true source of the virus was the US!" one commentator said. "The US owes the world, especially China, an apology," another said. "American coronavirus," one wrote.


Sexton relayed this while discussing Jim Acosta's claim that it "smacks of xenophobia" to call the Chinese coronavirus the Chinese coronavirus, and wondered why Jim Acosta had not seen fit to relay any of this background information about the Chinese government spreading propaganda about the virus being "the American coronavirus."

At some point, CNN might want to clarify with Acosta whether his job is inform people about what's going on in the world or simply to attack President Trump on camera.

Trump answered a question at the press conference about a Chinese State Media article claiming The US Army brought the Chinese coronavirus to China.

The State Department hailed the Chinese ambassador to the US into their offices to give them a talking to about the lies their government is pumping out:


Meanwhile, the US is finally taking a look at the perils of having so much of our pharmaceutical production in an enemy country that is prone to plagues, and is considering a push to bring the US' medicine and drug production back home.

The global spread of the coronavirus is reigniting efforts by the Trump administration to encourage more American manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and reduce dependence on China for the drugs and medical products that fuel the federal health care system.

The effort includes a push by the White House trade adviser Peter Navarro to tighten "Buy American" laws so federal agencies are required to purchase American-made pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, according to people with knowledge of the plans.

The administration has been preparing an executive order, which could be released in the coming days, that would close loopholes allowing the government to purchase pharmaceuticals, face masks, ventilators and other medical products from foreign countries. The hope is that increasing government demand for American-made drugs and medical products will provide an incentive for companies to make their products in the United States, rather than China.

To help facilitate such production, the White House is also pushing for streamlined regulatory approvals for American-made products and more detailed labeling of the origin of products made offshore, these people said.

I'd like to see the Free Trade At Any Price globalists respond to this: China is actually threatening to kill Americans by refusing to sell medicine to us.

So, sure: Let's leave critical US manufacture capability solely in the hands of evil communist hostage-takers!

This is probably just saber-rattling, but it's still a bit worrisome as the U.S. is struggling to deal with a pandemic. A Chinese state media outlet has published an article bragging about the nation's control over the supply chain of pharmaceutical drugs:


Now that the number of new people infected with the coronavirus in China is slowing down, the country's Communist Party is ratcheting up threats against the West, with a particularly nasty warning about access to life-saving drugs aimed at the United States.

In an article in Xinhua, the state-run media agency that's largely considered the mouthpiece of the party, Beijing bragged about its handling of COVID-19, a virus that originated in the city of Wuhan and has spread quickly around the world, killing nearly 5,000 people and infecting thousands more. The article also claimed that China could impose pharmaceutical export controls which would plunge America into "the mighty sea of coronavirus."...

They're literally threatening to deliberately inflict a biowar on America -- and the Corporate Supremacists will tell us, Cartel boycotts by Chinese Communist Dictators is exactly what Free Markets look like at their best...

Maybe it's time for a real Trade War with China -- as in, beginning a five-year ramp-down of any goods from China.

Hollowing out your industrial base and moving it to enemy territory that steals from you, cheats you, and allows you to consume the output only at its own sufferance was perhaps the stupidest move anyone ever made.

I am big on trade. I am big on free trade - but only if the partner both reciprocates and has property and human rights.

Free trade with Canada? Cool, definitely. Free trade with most of Europe? Right on. Free trade with parts of South America? Fine.

Free trade with China? No - not until they reciprocate and respect property rights. Free trade with Japan? No - not until they reciprocate.

It's going to be a painful for us - very painful - to undo the damage but we need to undo it.

111 The God vs. False God game for idiots.

A thought finally came clear for me. The media consistently portrays the federal government as some sort of Mt. Olympus.

If a dem is the Prez, that person will be Zeus. A dem Prez can essentially do no wrong, and can smite all manner of evil and maladies at will.

If not a dem, the Prez can do no right, for they are a false god and it is the mandatory duty of the press lacky to attempt expose the false god so that others can see. If they fail to do so, we will all be beset with plagues of evil and maladies that the false god can not smite.

I guess some people could admire their dedication to their faith, but I find their idiotic worship of a bloated, bureaucratic fever swamp to have grown old, boring, and tedious. May they get what they truly deserve.

134 I've been watching Scott Adams on YouTube lately. He does Periscope live videos, but records them and puts the recording on YouTube.

He's been saying he wants to see the USA "decouple" from China. His stepson died from fentanyl overdose, and he is definitely not a fan of the Chinese government (he says they could easily do something about fentanyl and they aren't). So he has been talking about "decoupling" for a while now.

Today he said that decoupling is now inevitable. Can it get worse than a government threatening to withhold antibiotics during a pandemic for political reasons? How can the USA allow itself to be in this position anyway? Now that China has rubbed our nose in what an intolerable situation we are in, obviously we won't want it to continue, and decoupling will happen. I hope he's right.

President Trump: let's see some import duties on pharmaceuticals, extra-high for ones manufactured in China specifically.

They *all* fell for it. It went something like this:
"We can reduce our labor costs and crack a market that consists of a billion people with state infrastructure control that we can sell to. This is well worth some 'sharing' of our IP."

Then you wake up one day to find another factory down the road making your product and selling that to the billion-large market while you are thrown crumbs. "It's okay, I am still now a low-cost producer for the rest of the world, who will buy from me."

Until you see some upstart, full of government capital, selling a slightly different version of your product on the world market at a lower price, too. You can sue over their theft of your IP, but it doesn't matter because there are no property rights.

And then you wake up one day and Huawei is selling the switching equipment that keeps you alive and cornering the market on 5G, enabling them to steal even more because your pants were down while you were making a devil's bargain with the Chinese communists.

The Chinese aren't stupid. Our people were. "Oh, so to do business with you, I have to share my IP and start a joint-venture with one of your state-owned enterprises?"

The answer to that question should have been, "No thank you." Instead it was "Yes, please!"

Last night I was reading about something related to this that I didn't know existed: The Strategic National Stockpile, or SNS. This is a YUGE stockpile of medical supplies and drugs and medical equipment for a Doomsday scenario. It's been there for decades, and got ramped up after 9/11.

It's national security and they keep most of the details quiet, but information does get out and has to with appropriations and stuff. The locations are kept secret and under armed guard.

They can supposedly get "12-hr push packs" they call them of these medical supplies to any location in the country in 12 hours.

Also involved in this are "FMS" units, Federal Medical Stations, which are 250 bed "stations" that can be set up to handle overflow in a local area.

Numbers are secret, but they've probably got around 10K ventilators stocked up in these locations.

We were joking last night they're probably in mineshafts, ala Dr. Strangelove.

They actually the SNS to ship N95 masks to Washington and NY state medical centers because of the run on them.

Anyway, they've got billions of dollars of medical supplies squirreled away.

I think they were made in China. Darn Chinese.

187 I was quite surprised that any high-level ChiCom official would even intimate that the coronavirus was engineered at all, much less in a US laboratory.

That would make the story of bat-pangolin soup being the vector of origin and transmission little more than a fairy-tale. It would ramp up suspicion, understandably, that the ChiComs are engaging in some projection on their part.

When all the worldwide hysteria dies down, the ChiComs will have a lot to answer for. Unfortunately for them, this is happening a little too soon for Trump to be knocked out of office come Election Day. In that case, it will be time to take care of ALL family business come December 2020.

192 Last night I was reading about something related to this that I didn't know existed: The Strategic National Stockpile, or SNS. This is a YUGE stockpile of medical supplies and drugs and medical equipment for a Doomsday scenario. It's been there for decades, and got ramped up after 9/11.

It's national security and they keep most of the details quiet, but information does get out and has to with appropriations and stuff. The locations are kept secret and under armed guard.

They can supposedly get "12-hr push packs" they call them of these medical supplies to any location in the country in 12 hours.

Also involved in this are "FMS" units, Federal Medical Stations, which are 250 bed "stations" that can be set up to handle overflow in a local area.

Numbers are secret, but they've probably got around 10K ventilators stocked up in these locations.

We were joking last night they're probably in mineshafts, ala Dr. Strangelove.

They actually the SNS to ship N95 masks to Washington and NY state medical centers because of the run on them.

Anyway, they've got billions of dollars of medical supplies squirreled away.

We need free trade which ships all blue collar jobs overseas, and open borders which floods entry-level jobs with illiterate peasants from third-world countries, because "consumers" will benefit from cheaper goods.

Also, we need to raise your taxes to pay for increased policing of crime-ridden areas due to gangs of unemployed young men, rampant drug abuse, and ethnic tensions. Also, we're going to tax you to pay for meals for children whose parents can't find a job that pays well enough to feed their kids.

Well of course we can, we built all of those factories here before they did. We just let the business slip away, and that was our fault.

But it will take some time, can't build factories overnight. An emergency program with government support could probably get some up and running in 6 months or so.

230 Trump > Reagan.

Reagan, as great as he was, presided over the defeat of the Soviet Union because he had the stones to persevere with a fight that had gone on for 40 years. The Left wanted to give in, but Reagan wanted to deliver the knockout punch.

Trump is fighting a fight that no Intellectual Yet Idiot even wanted to begin, much less think could be won. By the sheer force of his OrangeBadness, he single-handedly shifted the paradigm of even allowing the possibility of winning an economic fight with China.

After showing a little mercy to them in December, he's going to be poised to deliver a knockout blow later this year. Nobody in the IYI set seriously thought that Phase Two would ever happen - the ChiComs would simply shrug it off.

Once the dust settles on the true economic damage the Trade War and COVID-19 deals the Chinese economy, I'll bet when Trump asks very nicely to talk about IP theft this year, Xi will answer.

There is a dark flip side to the free trade fundamentalist equation that profoundly misunderstands human psychology and spirit.

Offshoring everything will result in trade deficits, which must be sanitized through the purchase of assets from the deficit-making country. This is usually things like buildings and ports, but it can also be bonds. As long as the equation balances, it doesn't much matter.

There is a reason that the budget deficit and the trade deficit are related - purchase of government bonds by our trading partners who run surplus with us are a handy and liquid way to balance things out. And we need them to do so, because we have to spend that money on social programs to fill in the gaps left behind by all of the offshoring.

It feeds itself and in so doing eats away at us. It does so because the geniuses who thought up these schemes assumed that the government could close the gaps left behind by the massive capital flows caused by global wage arbitrage.

In other words, they made the assumption that welfare was the same as a paycheck. It isn't.

In reading stuff about the SNS last night and the N95 masks, the figure of 13 million in stock in the SNS was given (but who really knows). Anyway, the run on these masks prompted them to request appropriation to increase the supply in the SNS to 500 million by 2021.

So this gives you some idea of the scale of the SNS.

And it's all secret. The locations are very secret, with Area 51 type security. You don't want an enemy to know where there are, and don't want a panicked bunch of locals in the Zombie Apocalypse storming them.

They used equipment from the SNS for repatriating the diplomats from China, and most likely used in that big cruise ship operation.

They can get tons of shit that are needed to places like this quickly without having to rely on local stocks and markets.

They own less than they used to. They sold a lot of them during the financial crisis and since then to prop up domestic industries. There is a lot off-book (suspected, anyway, because places like Norway seem to own disproportionately large amounts of US treasuries) and the exact figures aren't known, but the Fed bought a *lot* of Treasury paper during QE and a lot of it was likely Chinese in some manner.

He shit talks people where there is no chance of negotiation because they are human scum, but understands that public attacks during a negotiation would be stupid.

335 Odd. APMEX is now charging $3.99 over spot for Silver American Eagles and Gold Eagles are $64.99 over spot.


And they are saying a delay of 2-3 business days in shipping.

I normally order from them and get a shipping notice the same day within a few hours if it was a week day.


Somebody is buying up silver and gold by the metric a$$ ton because those prices are way over what they used to charge and they literally never had shipping delays in the last 15 years since I have been buying from them.

Only one species of the eucharist is necessary to be a sacrament. There is no reason to include the Blood of Christ for communion. That said, the sacrifice of the mass is required for reception unless the reception is part of the rite of extreme unction/last rights/anointing of the sick. That too is a rite, not just the receiving of communion. There cannot be drive through eucharist.

371 "Now is the time to treat them like the adversaries they actually think
and act like they are. Time to disengage from both China and Russia."

too bad the West did not stick together ... Soviets fell with the Berlin Wall, but someone still runs the KGB, perhaps as more of a cartel. And then we made China even stronger ... China has infiltrated much of the world, buying up resources, moving into power. We need Europe and Australia to "re-couple" with Western ideology, as we decouple from Soviet/China communism.


But the Soviets have also been colonizing to some extent ... they were Mandela's buddy in S Africa ... and they won. Now we have the BRICs thang ... we need to get South America to turn toward Westernism, instead of Cartelism/Communism. ... Maybe Central/South America could replace China for more menial labor .. but leave them in their own country.

So the priest couldnt have done the Sacrifice of the Mass beforehand (which is what I meant) and brought it to the people in their cars. I mean Eucharistic Ministers don't do the sacrifice of the Mass-they just bring already consecrated hosts around? I'm not trying to be irreverent here; I'm just saying that depending on how long this goes it a long time without communion.

390 There is one thing that could be done immediately under existing law. We could begin regular testing all shipments of finished generic pharmaceuticals from China for purity and effectiveness. That would not require effort or spending by the US government, it could be imposed on the distributors of these pharmaceuticals.

Throw in guaranteed purchase contracts for domestic producers from the VA and DofD and we're off to a good start in restoring our domestic manufacturing base.
